Chris O’Donnell and his wife Caroline Fentress have announced that they are expecting their fifth child!

On the Today show on Wednesday, Chris was asked about his four children. “Another on the way,” he replied, before high-fiving Today cohost Ann Curry.

He added, jokingly, “Yeah, we’re just starting to figure out how it works. I think I know why this is happening, but we’re really excited about it.”

The 37-year-old actor married Caroline, a schoolteacher, in 1997. Their four other children are Lily, 7, Chip, 6, Charlie, 4, and Finley, 16 months.

Chris also mentioned on Today that he has just finished filming Kit Kittredge: An American Girl Mystery, a drama based on the American Girl line of dolls – a project which gave his daughter Lily a true movie-making experience.

“She came to the set and hung out for four days,” he said. Chris is currently starring in the CIA miniseries The Company on TNT.

Best Wishes!

    Congratulations to them! I think it’s great! I have 3 children that are 4, 3, and 9 months. Even though it’s a lot of work, it’s very rewarding. It’s just nice to hear Hollywood news that doesn’t involve a DUI, rehab, or another divorce!

    Beautiful blessed event # 5, and they are so sweet together! Not everyone is totally into limiting their kids down to 1, some couples believe marriage is mainly for having children. To each his own.
